the digital signature is broken. Install xperf from the Visual Studio Toolkit.

I was originally at 1 minute 38 seconds boot up time in Win 7 64 and so far ive managed to get it down to 52 seconds (with the help of this very forum and the Win 7 forum), im not sure if I can get it any lower but here's what Ive tried so far:

-defrag boot drive (1TB Samsung F3 Spinpoint 7200rpm SATA)

-Ran Auslogics Registery defrag

-Ran Soluto and had it remove or delay apps from its 'recommended' list.

-Uninstalled apps I didnt need that were in the start up list

-Went through the guide in this thread, let it reboot PC 6 times (this brought it down from 63 seconds to 52 seconds start up time).

PC:

i7 920 @ 3.36ghz

6GB DDR3 1600

EVGA GTX 480

Win 7 64 Ultimate

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Rev 1.6 motherboard

4 Internal Hardrives (3 SATA, 1 IDE).

The only thing that makes me think it could be faster is we have an older PC here that boots win 7 64 in 46 seconds and I havent done anything to it startup wise, it also has a much slower 160GB IDE boot drive (AMD X2 4800+ dualcore / 2GB ram).

Open regedit and go to here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction

what do you see there?Is OptimizeComplete set to Yes? If not what do you see in OptimizeError?

can you run the defrag from the command line? Have you disabled the automatic disk defragmentation of Windows?

Yes, I can run defrag from the command line. What do you mean by automatic disk defrag?

I mean the scheduled task in Windows which runs defrag when the PC is idle.

I see a lot of people improving their boot times from almost 1 minute to 30 seconds. My current boot time is about 29 to 30 seconds as it is. Can i expect to see any improvement from Readyboot if I'm already at the 30 second mark?

do a normal boot trace and look at the ReadyBoot graph. If it shows much black, run it. If it is mostly green/orange Readyboot is already fully trained.

First of all, thanks for writing this wonderful guide! It really worked, my boot time went from 150 s to 43 s. but that was a month ago, now my boot time is gradually increasing, but I haven't installed anything or change any settings on my PC, startup now take 60s (even after defrag). What can I do now?? Will applying the tweak again help??
